Interaction with guests
We will be here to greet you on arrival and show you up to the chalet to help you settle in. We have various guide books and maps for the area, and can recommend cycling and hiking routes and places to visit. We can show you around the slopes for a bit of social skiing if you are all intermediate skiers. In the winter we sell ski passes in house and can pre book your equipment and lessons. We are here for you as much or as little as you wish.

The Grand Massif is a mecca for wintersports: downhill skiing/snowboarding, extensive cross country skiing, dog sledding, ice-skating, snow-shoeing. In the summer there are also numerous activities from hiking, climbing, Samoens botanical garden and weekly market. White water rafting, mountain biking - the cable cars are open in the summer too!

The A40, E25 motorway junction 18, Cluses, is 20 minutes away by car during off peak times. Airport Transfers: We will be happy to help organise Geneva airport transfers with a local company. Distance to Ski Lifts: 2.5km to the lift station at Morillon and 5km to Samoens. There is a free ski bus in the winter to take you to the lift stations. In the summer a car is recommended.
